Books Info:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Child Trauma and Abuse free pdf The effects of trauma and abuse on children can be long-lasting, acute and damaging. Evidence suggests that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a highly effective form of psychotherapy to help children to overcome these effects. This book uses an evidence-based CBT treatment model to assist children and adolescents aged 9-15 years to resolve trauma symptoms and increase their coping skills. The approach is made up of 16 step-by-step sessions to carry out with the young person, and includes worksheets and fun activities using arts and crafts. The model uses four phases: strengthening the child's psychosocial context- enhancing their coping skills- processing their trauma through gradual exposure- and, addressing special issues that the child may have and preventing relapse. The child keeps a scrapbook for the duration of the programme in which they keep worksheets, artwork and any other activities they carry out. The approach is designed for individual therapy but also includes sessions for parents and caregivers. With photocopiable worksheets and easy to follow sessions, this will be an invaluable resource for all practitioners working with traumatized and abused children, including therapists, psychologists, counsellors, health professionals and social workers.
